Dept Marketing Statement Information Technology Services (ITS) is the campus innovation nexus that supports and amplifies the value of research, teaching, learning, and digital experiences at UC Santa Cruz. We are a group of diverse, enthusiastic people who produce extraordinary results that foster a campus climate where employees feel a sense of belonging.
Our guiding principles are integrity, client focus, teamwork, knowledge, and fulfillment. We are looking for people who are deeply curious, hard-working, ambitious, kind, and deeply committed to inclusive excellence. We aspire to operate in an Agile and Lean fashion. Our goal is to continually improve our service quality, experience, and value to our constituents. We care deeply about creating a diverse, high performing organization through recruiting while developing highly talented, well-rounded, staff.
We invest in career paths and career development, devoting a significant amount of resources to skill and professional development for our staff.
ITS promotes two areas for skill growth: 1. Developing generalizing specialists by focusing on technical depth and breadth 2. Growing service and product expertise
Academic Computing consists of campus wide Research and Instruction teams as well as Divisional Services teams. The latter are localized ITS staff embedded in the campus' five academic divisions and library who provide personalized, discipline-specific, IT support for their constituents in service of the academic mission. We leverage commonalities through cross-divisional technical communities to develop and deliver right-sized/right-priced common services as appropriate, aggregating what we learn to provide as input to the larger ITS community. This position provides strategic direction, technical leadership, and human and resource management to develop and deliver IT services to the Humanities and its departments and programs. The incumbent works as part of a collaborative leadership team that delivers coordinated IT services to faculty across the five academic divisions, libraries, and the silicon valley center.
The Divisional Liaison (DL) for the Humanities is a leader for IT professionals who support the Humanities Division at UC Santa Cruz. The position works to understand the IT needs of the Humanities and to plan, coordinate, and manage the delivery of IT services to meet those needs. Successful candidates will demonstrate both breadth and depth in expertise aligned to the unit's portfolio.
The DL also plays a primary role in working to assure synergy between the Humanities division and ITS by working cooperatively with local IT staff in the academic divisions and other ITS units on shared service delivery and in representing the Humanities in campus-wide IT initiatives, planning, standards and policy setting, and operational governance.
A successful DL in Academic Computing will be tasked with both providing and facilitating IT services. The DL should have a working knowledge of all central ITS products and services and act as a medium in ensuring all local constituents are able to gracefully access central services. In this way, the DL will act as a facilitator ensuring that ITS is clearly understood and that the academic division is well served. The DL will build strong relationships to ease the resolution of any potential conflicts.
Through themselves and their assigned product teams, the DL will provide local IT services to the academic division or potentially larger communities. These services will be developed in direct response to the needs of the clients through the intimate knowledge of and strong relationships with the clients. These products and services should not be duplicative of other ITS services unless a principal officer has determined that the central service is not well suited to the needs of the division. These products and services will have a lifecycle tied to evolving services in central ITS and the needs of the clients. The DL will be required to adeptly determine when adjustments are needed, when services should be retired, when the client need has grown sufficiently to justify evolving a product to be globally provisioned, or when a new product need emerges.
Trust and relationships with people in every facet of the organization must be built and maintained. The primary talent of a successful DL is the ability to build trust. As DL, the buck stops with you. The DL may be the first point of contact, but is definitely the final one. Any client need not met by others must be answered in some way through the work of the Academic Computing DL.
